AROUND the world, 24 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered with hundreds of millions more on the way.
The world’s largest vaccination drive is currently under way. As of Monday, nearly 24 million doses of several COVID-19 vaccines have been administered, mainly to front-line workers and critical care patients, according to Our World in Data, a non-profit online scientific publication based at the University of Oxford.
While no globally aggregated dataset is available yet, several governments have begun reporting daily or weekly vaccine updates since vaccines became available in December last year.
The animation below provides a summary of the top 10 countries with the most number of administered vaccines. Note that this does not measure the total number of people that have been vaccinated, which usually requires two doses.
